Europe Caribbean Service (ECS) fleet disturbances
Our ECS service is experiencing major operational fleet issue with one of our chartered vessels, m/v RIO TAKU. Vessel was supposed to join line this week, but Owners advised us that repairs could last at least 3 weeks more.
Therefore with such short notice it is a challenge to keep weekly service from North Europe, as available vessel market is very poor. In order to preserve both Southbound and Northbound service CMA CGM has decided to arrange following changes to secure this difficult period:
- m/v EVRIDIKI G rotation is accelerated by one week in order to cover former m/v RIO TAKU position, and avoid 2 successive blank sailings. She will call Rotterdam and Antwerp. m/v LILLY SCHULTE will assist by feedering Hamburg and London imports and exports for this position. m/v EVRIDIKI G will be in Kingston on April 20th then April 25th in Puerto Moin (former proforma date of Rio Taku).
- m/v HANNAH SCHULTE currently 1 day late in North Europe will add call Dunkirk (to connect cargo Hamburg and London from m/v LILLY SCHULTE). Then she will omit Hamburg. She will be on pro forma schedule in Antwerp.
Please find below the above mentioned changes in details:
